Re:Verse reading–1 Samuel 7 (day three)
“Do not stop crying out to the Lord our God for us.”
Samuel stood in a place of agency on behalf of the Lord and in behalf of the people. This is the essence of priesthood. When people are weak, they seek out another who is stronger. In the fellowship of disciples of Jesus Christ, we will each take our turn in the weak seat. And we become like priests for one another, announcing God’s provision, proclaiming God’s forgiveness, telling the truth when it’s hard, pointing out his presence. When one who is weak approaches you for help in seeking God, will you rise to the occasion?
